Swamishri’s pure heart never ceases to amaze me. I have interviewed many celebrities and figureheads throughout my career as a journalist, but there is something different about Pramukh Swami Maharaj. It’s his simplicity and transparency. There is no mal-intent in his answers. It is pure. He is selfless and humble.

Pramukh Swami Maharaj is always considerate, simple and humble. He leads a multinational organization, yet is always relaxed. He is as light as a flower. He is able to do so because he has surrendered himself to Bhagwan Swaminarayan. He continues to serve society with the aim to please God. He thinks nothing of himself. He is just a means. God works through him.
Pujya Swami Shri Chidananand Saraswatiji
Creating a moral society is at the foundation of building a successful nation. Pramukh Swami Maharaj is doing this through BAPS. He is working to build a society with strong values and a pure character. He is doing an extraordinary job instilling those values in children and youths. I call that developing the nation. Moulding the character of one youth is equivalent to shaping a nation.

Pramukh Swami Maharaj is a great spiritual leader. I have met him quite a few times and each time I experience peace. Very few people’s presence gives you that feeling. It is a feeling of spiritual elevation. Swamishri’s presence has a mesmerizing effect. What surprises me the most is his ability to motivate and inspire so many people. It is always a pleasure and fortune to have his darshan.

– A Tribute to Pramukh Swami Maharaj

His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj (1921-2016) was the fifth spiritual successor of Bhagwan Swaminarayan and the inspirer of millions. He dedicated his life to selflessly serving others for the greater good of humanity, travelling across the world as an ambassador of love, peace, harmony, righteousness and faith. Pramukh Swami Maharaj was loved and respected as one of the great spiritual leaders of our time, who taught and embodied the timeless, universal wisdom: “In the joy of others lies our own.”

The month-long ‘Pramukh Swami Maharaj Centenary Festival’ is being hosted on a gigantic 600-acre site called ‘Pramukh Swami Maharaj Nagar’ in western Ahmedabad, Gujarat. The site has been transformed into a cultural wonderland, with something for people of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy and learn.

About BAPS

Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS) is a socio-spiritual Hindu organization with its roots in the Vedas. It was revealed by Bhagwan Swaminarayan (1781-1830) in the late 18th century and established in 1907 by Shastriji Maharaj (1865-1951). Founded on the pillars of practical spirituality, BAPS reaches out far and wide to address the spiritual, moral and social challenges and issues we face in our world. Its strength lies in the purity of its nature and purpose.
